Spooktacular Mini Swap 15 received

I can't believe that it has been over a month since I last posted here.
I don't think I've ever gone that long before.
I haven't shared because there hasn't been much  to show you. 
There have been only 2 quilt related things going on here lately, one being the really fun Spooktacular Halloween Mini Quilt Swap.
I received my package a number of weeks ago but haven't had time to take pics of all the goodies until now.

My partner was Julie, no blog but she's on IG @jpy0718
She hit is out of the park with the fabulous mini quilt that she made for me plus all the other little goodies that she included.
Here is what I received.
 Just look at this gorgeous Ghastlie mini quilt. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
Julie had never heard of the Ghastlies before this swap and now I think she's hooked too.
Each area has some different quilting that really looks great.
 The back is so much fun and she even embroidered the label.  Very cool.
 She also embroidered for me this ghoulish hand towel.  Love it too.
Though I don't have nor want an embroidery machine, things like this make me think twice about one.
 Julie included a pretty note pad (one can never have too many of those) and a package of needles.
 And last but certainly not least is the sooooo cute little zipper pouch.  How many more times can I say I love it!!!!
Julie thank you, thank you so very much for being such a wonderful swap partner.  I truly adore all that you sent to me.  Receiving terrific swap packages like this one makes me truly wish that I had more time to participate in more swaps.  I can't wait to get the quilt hung in my studio where I can look at it all year round!

Oh, the creativity you have been blessed with!!!! Julie, I'm sure, had so much fun preparing your wonderful swap package. I am always amazed when I read how others make the time to participate in so many of these swaps!!! Makes me wonder what exactly I do with my time!!!!!!! Glad to see you're back......even if it's briefly. With school started and all the other many tasks that seem to flood our Autumns, the time/days seem to evaporate before we know it!!!!!!!
